Escherichia coli O157:H7 causes bloody diarrhoea, haemorrhagic colitis and life-threatening complications like haemolytic uremic syndrome and thrombotic thrombocitopenic purpura. Among foods associated with outbreaks caused by this pathogen, hamburger is the most common one. The aim of this research was to determine the radiation dose to reduce the population of E. coli O157:H7 in hamburgers to non-detectable levels in order to render a safer product. Hamburgers, inoculated with Escherichia… CONTINUE READING
